For a virus to replicate it must insert its own DNA into a host nucleus cell. This newly infected cell finds another host cell to replicate, and a viral infection is produced.

Yes they have own DNA. So they replicate by their own

"True" viruses replicate by injecting their code into another executable program. Most likely, the "host" program is a commonly used application such as Microsoft Word so that this guarantees the virus is able to successfully replicate. When the infected program is executed, control diverts to the virus, which the copies and infects another program, and then returns control back to the host program. Long loading times for programs are a common sign of virus infections.

it can cause problemes on your pc, it can erase your entire hard drive, it can replicate(multiply). more info coming soon

It must be testable for science to be able to answer a question.

Viruses are cellular parasites.

. Viruses must reproduce in a host cell because they lack organelles needed to duplicate viral components. True or false

The DNA must be reproduced to make more infected cells so yes they must have a host in order to become a full-on virus.

The hypothesis must be able to be proved true or false.

It must be polar, as water is polar. Like dissolves Like.

It's not true that macs can't get viruses, but the chances are MANY, MANY times lower than pcs.

Yes, its true Apple computers can get viruses, but it is extremely unlikely due to the way they have been designed.

Intelligence. - I believe that true genius not only involves a high IQ, but requires a vast understanding of all subjects. Foremost, I think that to be considered a true genius, you must be able to comprehend and accept the concept of "infinity". You must be able to accept that the universe has no bounds and be able to wrap your mind around the concept.

A hypothesis is testable when we can determine experientially whether it is likely to be false or more likely to be true. That means we must be able to distinguish between it being true or false observationally. Thus, equally important to finding observations that confirm the hypothesis, we must be able to specify what it is we expect to see in the case that the hypothesis is false: the hypothesis must be falsifiable in order to be testable.It must be able to be proved right or wrong.

It isn't true, but it's pretty rare when you get one on a macbook.

That is certainly not true. There are for example viruses that routinely wipe out almost the entire tentworm population. There are others that attack bacteria. Some viruses attack cancers!

If that were true, we would all be dead from having colds, which are caused by viruses. The reality is many viruses are harmless or just an inconvenient if you are otherwise healthy.

They aren't basic like viruses.

I wouldn't call bacteriophages parasites, but yes they are viruses which infect bacteria.
